about some of the important historical, literary and cultural science in the area. next we bring the story of the set in in 1939 >> 19395 african-americans were arrested at the alexandria city library as they tried to obtain a library card. the attorney general samuel tucker was beyond the set in which resulted in the creation of a separate library for its black residents. we traveled to the site of the original sin-in and for a place where the black library was built to meet today and african-american history uneasy come to tell the story of samuel tucker and the people that are arrested the day for the act to get a library card. estimate august 31st 5 african-american young men who were not allowed to use the library came in and each politely asked for a library card. they were denied, set down at separate tables and the staff just didn't know what to do with fat to get paid taxes, fall also walls but they are not able to take part in the things of the alexandria citizen was about to take part in. this is part of a program that the young local attorney had been working on for s
through cal so she can now teach science in your schools. i made it to foreman by straight dealing and producing quality work that commanded respect. that is my ethic. i think we will produce a quality agreement for you, a functional agreement for you and i think the advocates of local hire are afraid of that because they don't want to give us credit for anything. they want to be able to declare victory and they want bragging rights. that should not be the concern of this district. it should be what works for its students. thank you. >> good evening. i'm here for the same reason -- to formulate a pla that's best for san francisco. i think the disagreement or discussion is how we get there. i represent local 43, fire sprinkler unit. we long to the san francisco building trade and we feel that pla between san francisco unified school district can only come to fruition if that's done through the san francisco building trades because they represent all the building trades. and like the people before me, i just ask that you take that into account. thank you. >> good evening. m
for them in their survey -- not one said that they had heard about the computer science field through /koupcounselor at their school. now, that's problem /ph problematic. no one had told them so it really is educating our high school counselors, or college and career counselors, our career tech education folks on -- these are viable opportunities for our students and we need to present it to them and find places to expose them to this because 75 percent of engineers say they come from families of engineers and so they need that exposure and we want our students to have that exposure. and that was our only topic and again it was deep and it was interesting and we had lots of different perspectives so again, i wanna thank the leadership for bringing this tommic and inviting the special guests to comment on it as well. >> thank you for that report. commissioner wynn from the budget committee. >> thank you. so we met last week. we mostly just talked about -- our deputy superintendent gave us an estimate that they would be recommending or trying /o -- we would be trying to find in our
